Travel Blogs from Merzouga
We are all feeling very weary tonight due to the long drive down here to Merzouga. We left around 9am and arrived here at 7:45pm but we've had a wonderful day. The scenery changed dramatically hour by hour and it was a fascinating day.
Fes was was a lovely city with enormous differences between the old and new parts. The old are always …
We had a terrific day! Hamid arrived proudly wearing his jilaba, the warm hooded coat, now that he was back in his family's home town. Since he had also wrapped a turban around his neck and head, he looked very traditionally Moroccan.
Then we took off for the desert. Merzouga is right on the Sahara Desert edge and looks it. The desert is …
Today Hamid met us wearing his jellaba and turban ready for a day in the desert. Merzouga is his home town so he'd had a nice evening visiting with friends and family.
He had a new off road vehicle for today's adventure, couldn't take his beloved Prado off road where it might get touched or scratched! He took us for a drive into the …
Today was going to be our longest driving day, 600 kilometers, so Hamid was quite insistent that we be ready to go by 9am. Not finishing breakfast, he said, but packed and ready to leave. Of course being the good little school teachers we are we gave him a hard time about that but we were in the foyer promptly at 9.
Before leaving Fez though, …
... siesta b/c the on/off bus sleep wasn't quite sufficient. Then, we decided to find the "city" of Merzouga...after what was supposed to be about 30 minutes, but was really closer to 90 minutes of desert walking through sand and hot sun, we finally arrived in the not so bustling town of Merzouga. We paid a kid about .$50 to help us find a restaurant....b/c we were famished from our desert walk.

TravelPod Member ReviewsRiad Nezha Merzouga
Riad Nezha is a gorgeous and authentic resort. The rooms were very Moroccan inspired but also had a touch of "hotel" with clean towels, soaps, etc. The food that is provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner is absolutely delicious and flavorful. The ingredients are bought fresh from the market and prepared in a beautiful manner. The poolside is fantastic and relaxing. I honestly can say that it is the people of this resort that made my stay memorable. Mohammed and the staff are so fun to be around and are also very resourceful when it comes to the town and the desert. I felt right at home and welcomed. I will definitely recommend the Riad Nezha to anyone and I will stay here again when i travel back to the Sahara desert!
